Hello,

 

Welcome to Just Answer and thanks for your question. There are a lot of meanings for the acronym APA. Which one are you referring to?

 

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
APA american psychological association
Expert:  A. Schuyler replied 2 years ago.

The American Psychological Association is an association of psychologists. They don't dictate anything in colleges. Perhaps I am missing the point of your question?

 

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
What aspect of college covers APA style? Part of the answer i found is it covers psychology and other social sciences. Can you maybe elaborate on the answer to the question at hand?
Expert:  A. Schuyler replied 2 years ago.

The APA style manual is used in the behavioral and social sciences. It is a clean, clear, simple style of presentation with its own set of rules of punctuation, headings, chart structure, and citation of sources that is used world-wide.

Expert:  Cher replied 2 years ago.
Hello, and welcome back to Just Answer.

Many aspects of college writing are covered by APA Style. The APA provides a specific format to help students organize research papers, which is required in many academic departments, but especially those of the social and behavioral sciences. The APA style in college writing is best known as a way to organize and document sources used in research papers. Most college professors require that APA style is used in the papers and essays that are assigned. This approach covers many aspects of writing and guides the student to use the appropriate stylistic and structural components for all research papers required to be written in college. There are other writing styles that some professors require, such as MLA (Modern Language Association) and Chicago Styles.
